    Notes 
    • Stephen came from Othem, Kent, England, to Newtowne (Cambridge), Massachusetts about 1634 and then joined the group under REV. THOMAS HOOKER which settled Hartford, Connecticut. He moved from Hartford to the Oyster River Quarter of Saybrook about 1649, where he died.

      Excerpt from NEGH Register: Stephen and Elinor had just one child baptized at Hollingbourne, and the Post family appears to have left Hollingbourne altogether by the mid-seventeenth century, given that the burial of Stephen's father in 1639 is the last entry for the surname in the register. Stephen apparently moved to Otham by 1629 when his second child was baptized there. "Stephen Post of Otham, carpenter" was bondsman on 1 Mr 1632 for the marriage intentions of his sister Mary Post with Allen Wenn. Stephen signed the Otham parish register as churchwarden in 1632, and was mentioned in that register for the last time on 3 Sep 1633 when his son Joseph was buried. Stephen Post and his family immigrated to new England between that date and 1 Sep 1634 when he was first mentioned in the records of Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 1636 he ws one of the first proprietors of Hartford, Connecticut. About 1649 he moved to sAybrook, Connecticut, where he lived until his death a decade later.
